Well Again

for Solo Harp (2019)

Duration: 5'00"

I wrote well again while reflecting on my past two years of continuous goodbyes, frequent travels, and constant disconnection from a permanent community. I use the sound of the human breath as a timbral counterpoint to the harp in order to humanize the sound and highlight the performer’s vulnerability in offering this simple meditation. The breathing becomes more regular throughout the piece’s process, reflecting the journey of restoring inner stillness after experiencing deep disquiet and becoming well again.
